Governor portraits returning to Minnesota Capitol

The Minnesota Historical Society was going to rotate the portraits in and out over time, but the legislature demanded that all 38 paintings be on display at the State Capitol.

Brian Bakst of Minnesota Public Radio:

[Minnesota Historical Society Chief Executive Officer Stephen] Elliott said the portraits will start returning to the Capitol in the spring with additional details provided with them to put each governor in historical context. A precise arrangement hasn’t been determined.
